BookTrust Represents report

BookTrust has reported on research into representation of people of colour among children’s book authors and illustrators and found that although the British children’s book sector is doing well and more children’s books are sold in the UK than ever before, the people who create these books do not reflect the makeup of the UK.

University College London and BookTrust demonstrate that children’s books are important for all children from all backgrounds, so books should reflect their lives, whether they are reading at home or at school, and they should be meeting authors/illustrators of colour when schools organise book talks.
